Erin Gilmore joined the CASA team in October of 2019. Erin was born and raised in Montana. Her husband and three boys have called Helena home for 10 years now.

career opportunities

executive director

CASA is looking for a dynamic leader to become its Executive Director. This person will be responsible for finding creative ways to increase volunteers and donors by building relationships within our community, increasing funding through fundraising efforts and grant writing, mentoring staff, and collaborating with the Board of Directors to move the organization forward. 

The Executive Director is ultimately responsible for the overall management of the organization and all aspects of the organization’s operations. This primarily involves supervising and coordinating a volunteer service program that provides Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected children in Lewis & Clark and Broadwater Counties. 

Are you someone who wants to change a child’s story, are you a leader, do you have fundraising or non-profit experience, or enjoy building a team to take on an important mission? If this sounds like you, CLICK HERE to learn more!
